1998 Ford Explorer Exhaust, Mufflers & Tips

There are few things in the car realm more annoying than a bad exhaust. Leaky exhaust systems can hurt performance, fuel economy, throw check engine codes and prevent your car from passing smog. A high-quality performance exhaust can be one of the most rewarding mods you can do to your vehicle. Every time you accelerate, shift or rev the engine you get a visceral impact from the sound and feel of your exhaust cracking and burbling.

A good exhaust setup can also be one of the best style upgrades for your car, whether it’s a side, single or dual exit, a chrome or titanium exhaust tip can make your car stand out. An exhaust system is a relatively expensive mod, that’s why it’s important to do research to find the best exhaust system brands and types to fit your vehicle and your customization goals.

Aftermarket manufacturers spend thousands of hours of prototyping and testing their custom exhaust systems to ensure every piece - from the headers to the muffler – performs to their specifications. Want to know how exhaust systems work or compare a slew of performance exhausts? Check out our exhaust buyers guide for an in-depth comparison.

"Sound is just right; you can hear it but it's not loud. The only difficult part of installation was getting the old system off. Fit is good, but tight clearance around rear suspension. Had to remove the rear stabilizer bar during installation." —Nathan S from Westland, MI bought a Gibson Exhaust Systems for a 1998 Ford Explorer.

"Over all a good purchase with a few minor issues. The good: Exact fit. Well built with the exceptions bellow. Passed emissions test with flying colors. The bad: Incomplete welds on one of the three i purchased. Not a big deal for me as I have a welder. O2 sensor socket not properly threaded, I had to buy a tap to thread the socket. "AutoAnything" Web site showed these were "in-stock". They were actually drop shipped from the manufacturer. Magnaflow was out of stock for a week or so." —Carl T from Chino Hills, CA bought a Magnaflow Catalytic Converters - 49 State Legal for a 1998 Ford Explorer.

"I added this to my 98 exploder and I have noticed a big increase in horse power." —Michael L from Farmington, NH bought a Magnaflow Catalytic Converters - 49 State Legal for a 1998 Ford Explorer, 4.0L V6, code X engine.

"Product was as promised, fitted my car well. Installation was easy and I saved a lot of money in the process. Thank You." —Samson G from Fitchburg, MA bought a Magnaflow Catalytic Converters - 49 State Legal for a 1998 Ford Explorer, 4.0L V6, code E engine.

"Sound is just right; you can hear it but it's not loud. The only difficult part of installation was getting the old system off. Fit is good, but tight clearance around rear suspension. Had to remove the rear stabilizer bar during installation." —Nathan S from Westland, MI bought a Gibson Exhaust Systems for a 1998 Ford Explorer.

"I took a look at the pipes and mocked them up, but some custom bending was required to make them fit without hitting the right shock so I had them installed at a dedicated custom muffler shope for a saw buck. Overall not bad, but i didnt see much of a HP gain, but they sound sweet." —Cole M from Omaha, NE bought a Heartthrob Deep Tone Cat-Back Dual Exhaust Kit for a 1998 Ford Explorer.

"i recently purchased a stainless Gibson catback exhaust for my 1998 Ford Explorer with a 4.0 SOHC. i noted a few things during installation. One was that the fit of the muffler to the cat was not the best. As it was a dual inlet muffler, the kit comes with a flange on one side with a flare and on the other side, a straight pipe that slides over the cat pipe. Neither side sealed up well and moisture leaks out there even after the bolts and clamp are tight. Secondly, i noticed that the clamp included with the kit was a 2 1/2" for one side on the front of the muffler, when in fact, a 2 1/4" clamp is the right size. And finally, i have had some problems with exhaust clearance on the right rear shock. i was only able to get the exhaust in far enough for 1/8" of clearance on the shock and it vibrates against it frequently. Otherwise, i like the tone and the power. My truck even seems to run better with this system than it did with the stock one." —Geeshik B from Cedar Grove, WI bought a Gibson Exhaust Systems for a 1998 Ford Explorer.

"This exhaust sounds great and is a great value for the money.installation was simple, the hardest part is removal of old exhaust.stainless steel is a plus, the tip looks awesome" —Evan K from Abington, PA bought a JBA Performance Exhaust for a 1998 Ford Explorer.

"Absolutely love the sound of the Flowmaster 50. Not too loud and extremely quiet inside, but nice and throaty outside. Couldn't be happier, and AutoAnything has been an excellent site to shop with and deal with so far!" —Joseph M from Levittown , NY bought a Flowmaster Super 50 Series SUV Mufflers for a 1998 Ford Explorer.
